This small patch of bluebonnets captured my interest. This Texas hill country roadside decreed springtime had arrived along the berm, while surrounding pastures were still carpeted in winter drab.

 I often paint nature's surprises, and this small bluebonnet landscape captured my interest because this Texas Hill Country roadside had apparently decreed springtime had arrived, despite the surrounding pastures still being carpeted in winter drab. The protection of a limestone outcropping sheltering a narrow ditch is all this isolated ribbon of bluebonnets needed to burst into bloom well ahead of their cautious neighbors. The tall, dried grasses whipped by winter winds frame hardy wildflowers in a serendipitous gift from nature. 

This landscape is from a photo I shot from the truck while going seventy miles an hour. Not much as photographs go, but it was good enough to remind me of the delight I felt when we topped a rise and saw this unexpected color. It's one of my favorite shots of bluebonnets because it is so atypical to see them surrounded by winter browns instead of the lush green pastures and roadsides we think of as springtime in central Texas.

The richly textured wood frame echoes the colors of the waving grass back into the painting. Non-reflective museum glass offers the ultimate viewing experience, even as it protects your valuable artwork from the ravages of UV rays and pollutants. Pastels are a non-reactive type of paint, so the vivid colors you see today will not fade or yellow over time, and your pastel will bring generations of joy.

Verified Archival Materials Used

The Art Storefronts Organization has verified that this Art Seller has published information about the archival materials used to create their products in an effort to provide transparency to buyers.

Description from Merchant:

We want Lindy Cook Severns art to last for generations. All prints, whether open editions or uniquely embellished remarques are done on with archival (acid-free, non-reactive) ink and papers and matted in acid-free matboard. Original art, from the smallest drawings and watercolors to the largest oils and pastel paintings are done on archival surfaces. Lindy uses the highest grade pigments in each medium. Light-fastness of pigments is further protected by covering all but all paintings in artist grade UV protective glazing, whether glass or acrylic. Conservation framing on original art means no reactive materials come in contact with the artwork, so all tape and backing boards are acid free and create a barrier for the artwork.
